The group belongs to the Lleida Biomedical Research Institute (IRBLleida) and the Arnau de Vilanova University Hospital (HUAV), and was created with the aim of bringing together all neurological research developed at the Hospital. It is led by Dr. Francesc Purroy (HUAV Neurologist), and Dr. Gerard Piñol (Santa Maria University Hospital Neurologist). Both are also professors at the University of Lleida. The group consists of medical specialists (neurologists, radiologists, psychologists, nurses, vascular surgeons, geriatricians clinical and biochemical) and researchers (biologists and biotechnologists) with the common link of being related to the clinical neurosciences field. This variety of specialists gives the group a clearly translational character. In the field of neurology the group takes special interest in the study of cerebrovascular disease (stroke and transient isquemich attack) and cognitive impairment.
